Getting a straight edge!

I seemed to have lots of bits of stuff unfinished and hanging around.  I still haven’t done the curtains for the bedroom that I started weeks ago but I have a valid excuse in that my right wrist wouldn’t at the moment cope very well with the lifting and manouvering of so much material.  It also couldn’t cope with cleaning the bathroom or peeling potatoes so B had to do those.

However I did add buttons to this…

and these…

which are the five hour baby cardigan pattern, which I adapted to make jumpers from, which also got buttoned and finished off today.

Then I sewed together my first every crochet clothing item other than a scarf…

and turned these – baby socks knit on two needles because I thought that would be way easier than four but holey moley how many loose ends to finish off can one baby sock have…

into these…

The above items are for a hospital in South Africa which is helped out by one of our doctor’s receptionist’s husbands and were brought to you courtesy of yarn supplied by another receptionist and some odds and sods I had.

And finally, although I did finish this yesterday, we have Candy Cane Buddy…

whose alias is Barber Shop Pole Buddy!
